    Created a fine opportunity for the press to spout all the same garbage again.

    Dr Young said people needed to be aware that e-cigarettes were not approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration in Australia.
    They can deliver unreliable doses of nicotine, leak, contain toxic chemicals or may not be packaged properly.
    While some claim e-cigarettes are an effective cessation aid, the Australian Council on Smoking and Health has said some research shows they can normalise a practice that is increasingly frowned upon and encourage young people to smoke the real thing.
    Get some research into you, Dr. Young.

    "Products containing liquid nicotine continue to be illegally sold and used in Queensland," she said in a statement.
    In Queensland liquid nicotine is classed as a regulated poison and restrictions are imposed on it, including its possession, use, advertising and sale.
    But Quickmist is perfectly harmle$$.

    Typical greedy idiot but we seem to have a lot of these in the industry. But this statement is just completely stupid. I've quit tobacco with ECigs and do you think cigarettes are "normal" to me now?

    If anything e-cigs will denormalise tobacco faster than any tired Government "sadvertising". So lots of "idiots" on both side...

    While some claim e-cigarettes are an effective cessation aid, the Australian Council on Smoking and Health has said some research shows they can normalise a practice that is increasingly frowned upon and encourage young people to smoke the real thing.

    Yay! The whole vaping community needs more bad press. We are all criminals. Wen will we see the error of our ways and go back to killing ourselves with cigarettes? We need to find a picture of this idiot and release it so every vaper who spots him can give him a more thorough education in vaping laws and etiquette.
